Main course even worse, saag aloo greasy, how the hell do you burn spinach? Seriously, there are so many good curry houses in Watford, this is by far the worst I've eaten... More

Visited with my wife when staying in the Hunton Park Hotel. Restaurant about 5 mins away in the car. Saw the great reviews here so decided to visit. Had a great meal which we shared 2 curries and some sides. Tried a Bangladesh beer which was really nice and crisp. Complemented the curry perfectly. Next time we are in Watford... More

After travelling several hours from South Wales, and an extra hour in city traffic, a hot, fresh, authentic curry was just what we needed. My husband and I looked straight on Trip Advisor after arriving and immediately made way to the Saffron. We were so glad we did! Staff were friendly and there was a fantastic atmosphere, even on a...

We are an Indian family who sometimes can't be bothered to cook so will get an Indian takeaway! Food is always authentically good!

I googled places close to where I was staying, and the reviews on Tripadvisor made me try this restaurant. Luckily it wasn't disappointing. I got there early as I needed to be finished to go get back to the hotel, so the restaurant was empty, but that meant that my food was also prepared quickly. I asked for recommendations (I... More

Watford���s Saffron is a popular and sophisticated Indian restaurant serving unusual regional dishes alongside classic curries and just a ten minute walk from the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour. The traditional interior, with crisp white tablecloths, dark wooden chairs and white walls decorated with Indian wooden carvings and artworks, is busy with couples and groups in the evenings and increasingly with enthusiastic sightseers keenly dissecting their day spent on the pavements of Hogsmeade. Saffron���s menu is a lengthy selection of fine Indian classics from throughout the country���s many and varied culinary regions. Delicately put together by the kitchen���s skilful team, dishes are distinctive and authentic, spiced ��� the spices ground and mixed freshly each day - and cooked according to tradition whether originating from the sun drenched shores of Goa or from the southern fringes of Bangladesh.
